Summary0013742: Album Art: inaccessible artwork should be superceded by available artwork
DescriptionCurrently there is no easy way to tell MM what Image would be presented in now playing, but it always show first one.

When scanning folders for Album Art, a folder can contain multiple album arts from Back to Front Album image. This needs to be tweaked so that MM always show Front Image if defined.

Additionally in case of multiple images available where First one is non accessible (even it is defined as Front) it should show first available Album art or if not possible (when there is only one image which is not cached 0013741) we should introduce new default empty image notifying user that there is a problem with Album art.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build

I think that we already sort the Front image first during scanning and then by resolution as the second criteria, right Ludek?

As for accessibility - I think that it's quite rare to have some images of a track accessible while others inaccessible, or do you have any common use-case example Peke?

Yes, front image and the resolution as the second criteria was implemented in course of #12245

Yes, I also think that it's quite rare to have some images of a track accessible while others inaccessible.
i.e. if there is no common use-case example then I would just lower the priority.

I managed to easily replicate using external drive

I would only add one more criteria: On load if album art is external check if it is readable and if not show next accessible.

I suggest that as it is better to show any available Album art than none?

Leaving as a lower priority item.
